PROTOTYPE

Salt was one of the most important feed stocks that fed the industrial revolution and vast quantities would have been transported nationally. The principal salt mining area in the UK was Cheshire, but salt was also mined in Lancashire, the Midlands and Yorkshire.

Once processed, the salt had to be kept dry and was transported in bags in high sided wagons with weather proof, usually pitched roofs. Private owner wagons for salt were common and where the salt was for table use, the vans used were often elaborately decorated with the suppliers branding. Salt wagons were in use commonly right up to the 1970s and several are now in preservation.
